Meet The Team

Steve Hudson

Steve Hudson , CEO

Creator of the Hudson Voice Technique

Steve started with 3M Company and Xerox (London and Washington DC) as International Communications Trainer. Working in Washington, he trained politicians and many executives from Fortune 500 companies. 


In order to find out more about using the voice professionally, he trained at the Royal National Theatre in London to become an actor. During the next few years, he became a successful international voiceover, recording Fuji, Mitsubishi,  Guinness, Gallo Wine, Old Spice, Martini, Superman and many others. He came close to real stardom when Cubby Broccoli was casting for the lead role in James Bond movies. Steve said he lost by an eyebrow (and a few million pounds) to Roger Moore.


Steve Hudson has won a number of awards for production and performance, including Best Radio commercial in the world at the Hollywood Radio and Television Society for ‘Sound International’.
